with the matter, we can perhaps discuss that first. but -- no. president chiu. supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: thank you, chair, and to my colleagues and to the people who spoke today on both sides of the issue. i think as we knew going in this, there is passion on both sides here. and i very much respect that as the author of this legislation. and what i neglected to do earlier, was fail to thank my cosponsor, supervisor wiener, and thank you for your leadership on this issue as well. as i spoke before and mentioned this legislation was designed to benefit everyone. this wasn't a one-sided piece of legislation. it isn't designed to pit homeowners against renters and the rhetoric that has come out in talking about this legislation has done that and that is extremely unfortunate. what we did was to, in this legislation, is to support both homeowners and t.i.c. owners but also renters as well as affordable housing community. i think today, what struck me the most, to be honest with you, were the personal stories that came out. the last speaker being a teacher that has to work a second j

with that my name is a himself i'm head up the be district program. we welcome president chiu welcome. without further adieu a man who's no stranger to this area mayor edwin lee. thank you. it's great to be here on 24th street i can literally see all the changes and the constant very brnt area. it gets crowded up here. i'm glad to join president chiu and the other supervisors who are supporting this neighborhood. all over the city we have 11 of these cb ds thought the city and 5 entire districts. the latest one i want to thank the board for the district that is raising their own money that can really compliment the downtown moscone. the neighborhoods i enjoy just as much because the neighborhood are constantly working to find ways to improve. i'm glad to see public works that helps get the permits done for those parks that have been here for 26 years and having funny; right? >> and that's at the way it should be. we have fun where we live and it's always a great investment to have the agencies working together with the neighborhoods association and the community benefit districts to improve a
chiu, for introducing that, and the supervisors who co-sponsored it. i'm just wondering about the other supervisors farrell, carmen chiu, yee, wiener and cohen, encourage you to add your names to that list of sponsors so that we can have unanimous sponsorship as this is a horrible measure. and it's very important that we speak up now about the civil liberties abuses and constitutional rights, violations happening under president obama, a democrat president so that we have the credibility to speak up later when it's republican president committing these abuses as happened in the past. and many of the members of the public don't have the opportunity to interact with someone like obama when he comes to town. they typically hide from their detractors in the public. but as representatives, you may have the chance to perhaps say a few words to obama at some point. so, when you do i hope you will ask him why and under what constitutional basis does he claim the authority to have anyone anywhere in the world at any time including u.s. citizens killed just on his say so that they are terrorists?
>> let me welcome everyone for coming out to this great kickoff event. mayor lee, supervisor chiu, distinguished guests from the community, city family, all of us coming together. last year we held a pilot project on stockton street to help the merchants and support the merchants in selling their merchandise. we were able -- we were very successful. we got a lot of great feedback from the pilot. so this year again, we are doing the second year of the pilot. all the agencies and the community and the merchants, we got together, and talked about how we can do better. and without further delay, i will ask the mayor to come and say a few words, who is a big supporter of this project. mayor lee. >> thank you mohammed. [ applause ] >> i am very happy to be here. is this okay? all right. all right. [ laughter ] all right. first of all, happy new year to everyone. this is what i'm looking forward to every year and i know the merchants and residents and all the small businesses are excited. a year ago board of supervisors president david chiu and i and members of the community discu

, supervisors. i also would like to thank supervisor chiu for the ndna resolution. and the reason for that, not just thanking him, but also encouraging all the other supervisors to stand behind this resolution. it's very important. this is a city that has "san francisco" values. we should stand up for values that are constitutional, that support individual rights, that are values that we know as a city. and i would encourage all of you to stand behind supervisor chiu. i would also encourage, if i may, to take this a little further. you know, you are already for the resolution planning to encourage members of congress and that's great. that's a tremendous -- a step in the right direction. but how about also encouraging the members of our state legislation to nullify the whole thing? i mean, we can. by law we can. we could go through the court system and this will take years, but i think the legislative process is there for people like you and me to stand up and say, hey, this is unconstitutional. we don't like it. and i would encourage all of you people here to take up this fight. thank yo

stamp? sixth in the second series. i'm glad to be joined the board president david chiu, our new supervisor norman yee district 7, and rod sengera postmaster general for the san francisco bay area. i see the wonderful beautiful designs that ken mack has for our stamp,a reflection of our cultural heritage. i want to thank the representatives of chinese companies and many others witnessing this to unveil this again. we are getting ready for the new year. as people know we are finishing up on what i think is one of the most exciting years that we have had with the year of the dragon. you know as well as i do that so many things happened, somewhat miraculously whether the world series or on our way to perhaps a super bowl, and even the economic recovery. i kind of thing from our own culture that it had something to do with the alignment of some great fantastic events that we could not control but that came together. and for welcoming in this new year we call it the year of the serpent but some of us will refer to as as a year of the many dragon. of course i want to recog
produce an experience that is positive for everyone. so i want to thank supervisor chiu. i want it it thank him for his leadership and the leadership of our constant street leadership. they get a little economic bump. that was the year of the dragon that we wanted to do something bold. the year of the serpent is like the mini dragon. it is there to also continue that great experience, but also make sure that we're safe for everyone. and so i want to register that we're going to do this again beginning this saturday. it will go for a couple of weeks before the actual start of chinese new year's, which is february 10th, but that leading up to it, all the merchants and in particular the small businesss along stockton street will get that economic bump as we work with chinatown youth center and all the wonderful non-profits that keep everybody safe on our sidewalks and have that positive experience. this is a great time for the city to celebrate. of course we'll be there from february 10th leading up to the great parade that we have that invites thousands of people here. i know th
and appreciate board president chiu's work with these efforts in opposing domestic violence and working on services. >> thank >> thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> hi, my name is maria hernandez. today i first they helped me stabilize my emotional state and after that, once i was more comfortable emotional, they taught me of the other resources and references and referrals to access in the community. they accompanied me to get those services. and they helped me -- they helped orient me as to the legal services available and told me where to go and who to speak to and what my process was going to be like and they helped me through this process. it's very important that we feel comfortable talking to someone in spanish and having resources available to us. we have a sexual assault crisis line and we see the importance of having someone there listening to you in spanish and helping you through the complicated processes. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker, please. >> no, it can't be that one with the swing in his budget arms. valerie, count on your attorney, va
and ed chiu. and i remember for several months i actually had the honor of being the youngest elected official in san francisco, i think for a couple months. and then soon thereafter we all know it happened, and carmen chu came in and was sworn into office. i actually remember that press conference that we spoke at. and i remember being like, ah, i can no longer hold that title. but it was exciting to be joined by another woman, young asian american woman. and then really had the pleasure of working with you over the last two years on budget committee. and i'm so glad actually that president chiu assigned both of us because i don't think i would have gotten to know you as well as i did if we hadn't sat through so many meetings. and, of course, our epic nights here at city hall and budget. and i have to say i really enjoyed sitting with both you and supervisor avalos, and something that i really respected about you and obviously was something that i saw in supervisor avalos in budget committee was that you stand on your principles. and whether i agree or disagree with someone, what is
at the beginning. and respond to questions raised. supervisor chiu you asked about the caseload data for the district attorney of an average caseload of 30 per attorney and where that number came from. if you look at table 3 on our report 11, actually based on the information provided by the district attorney, there show and average caseload per attorney, this is for the domestic violence division, of those cases assigned to trial, it shows 30 caseload per attorney average. and again, this is based -- it does show that is going up and that those are possibly the numbers that were being used there. >> through the chair, a clarification, i wasn't studenting that number, but i was disputeing 60 cases from the public defender's misdemeanor caseload versus the 30. i think that is comparing apples to oranges and the appropriate comparison would be 60 cases per criminal defense attorney in the misdemeanor unit on the public deferreders side versus a couple hundred on the district attorney's side. that is what i was really getting it. >> this does not show anything for the public defender
the leadership of mayor lee and board president and district 3 supervisor david chiu to address some community concerns that have been raised about the central subway project as it relates to the north beach neighborhood. i want to thank the mayor and supervisor chiu for their leadership in this. the supervisor may be joining later, but i want to acknowledge justin true from his office who is here to answer any questions you might have. the item before you today, upon approval, will enable this project to move forward in a way that addresses the community concerns, but also allows the project which will serve the larger san francisco community to advance as it's currently scheduled. the sud and the conditional use entitlements will allow us to remove the two tunnel boring machines from the pagoda palace site at 1731-41 palace street instead of our previous plan or current plan to remove them from columbus avenue in front of washington square park. the plan was to remove them from the public right-of-way, but in response to community concerns raised with the disruption that would cause to the n
are excited. a year ago board of supervisors president david chiu and i and members of the community discussed how we can continue the economic vitality of the city and clearly we registered a big support for small businesses. i wanted to make sure that everybody neighborhood in the city has a chance of cultural celebrations. when it comes to chinese new year, there is a huge celebrate in chinatown. we're a huge destination for visitors, a lot of people come to chinatown to celebrate chinese new year. as people come here, we wanted to help our small businesss with offering some additional space for them, but also make it even safer for our pedestrians. because if you have ever observed chinatown during the chinese new years, and david and i have been quite specific observers about this. you will see families and kids walk into the street in the middle of big buses and cars coming in. we didn't want that to happen. we didn't want anybody's safety to be compromised as we celebrate this new year's. because that would obviously be a serious hindrance. our public health director barbara g
number. >> president chiu on those numbers we took current year caseload and sliver simply looked at the impact on two attorneys on the case load. caseload reported for 2012, we looked at nine attorneys and the impact of having 11 rather than 9. >> okay getting to your question, your recommendation around victim witness investigator position. i was surprised there weren't any recommendations in that area and i want to understand that you state that the district attorney's office received $300,000 of general fund this past budget to fund the three previously grant funded position. my understanding is that state and federal grant sources dried up what in previous years around ad[sro-ebgts/]s victim witnesses and, in fact, i also understand there has been a 20% increase in the number of victims served by the d.a.'s office and no change in staff and i'm wondering if the mayor's office or d.a.'s office could provide a little bit of light on this issue? >> supervisor, kate howard, through the chair. generally, what you have described is correct. there were a number of grants that the
see in the comprehensive report that president chiu referenced, it's increasing drastically. you want to know that the referral you gave them, that they are going to be able to help them. and so this funding, this supplemental funding can lend itself to that. they can make that a reality for my staff team that are knowing that yes, we make these referrals and they are able to find help. we're very supportive of any additional staffing. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> thank you supervisor for allowing us to speak today. my name is nancy rock and the vice-chair of the san francisco women in action. we serve women, families and children in need in san francisco and throughout the bay area. i am here to reinforce the support you have given to the department on the status of women and we use a lot of their materials, reports and services. so we're expanding what you have allocated in terms of budget, and expanding that to a larger audience when we give our programs, we use their materials. we do that, because they can be trusted. there is a lot of stiff stuff on the internet and i
committee committee. i am scott wiener the chairman of the committee. to my left is supervisor david chiu, a member of the committee and vice-chair supervisor jane kim will be joining us momentarily. we did convene at 10:00 a.m. this morning and heard item no. 1, which we continued and then went into recess until now. so madame clerk, would you please call item no. 2. >> an ordinance amending the planning code by adding section 249.70. >> thank you. and item no. 2, the author is supervisor david chiu. supervisor chiu. >> thank you, mr. chair and i want to thank you for scheduling today's consideration of a suded is at site of the pagato palace. the pagota theater site which has been a blighted site for almost two decades. by way of a little bit of background we have come a long way since this issue was first brought to our attention late last spring when hi office got a surprising call the same day as the first community meeting to provide details about the proposed construction on columbus avenue. in 2008, the plan to extract the tunnel-boring machines in north beach was approached
thank you to boarder president david chiu and the supervisors who co-sporptd this legislation. i appreciate your help. my father spent the remaining years of his life fighting and reminding people about our japanese people who spent time in american prisons. with hatred brewing against our citizens and innocent americans because they looked like the enemy. the law says we can arrest anyone who looks like san franc and i reside in district 9. i want to thank supervisor chiu. i want to say a couple of things of why the mba and resolutions. you're going to hear from other people testifying behind me today. we could see indefinite military action of things that are indefined in the law. resolutions make the law clear. the law passed without a real debate in the law. and even when the law went to committee we have not seen the kind of debate from an unconstitutional law that can effect our rights under the 5 accounting and 6th and 8th amendment which presents certain things about our troops. and san francisco - i just want to point out that karen spoke a little bit about our faggots s
